Celtic platter

I'm not very good at making plates and I'm not always happy with the results. Recently I used a baking tray and some clay to make a slump mould and made this:

I drew a stencil from a book of Celtic design. Painted on white slip with velvet blue underglaze and hand painted the detail round the edge. 
I think it turned out pretty well and it will be winging it's way to Australia pretty soon with my Mum's Cousin Ellie.

so you finally made a plate that you're real happy with, and you're sending it to the other side of the world....
